iVirus publications and where iVirus is making a difference

Authorship and Citation

iVirus is built on tools developed by the Sullivan and Hurwitz labs, and expanded through inclusion of other, 3rd party tools. Anyone using iVirus tools (and the underlying programs) are asked to cite:

iVirus: Facilitating new insights in viral ecology with software and community data sets imbedded in a cyberinfrastructure. (2017) Bolduc, B., Youens-Clark, K., Roux, S., Hurwitz, B.L., and Sullivan, M.B. ISME Journal

Additionally, nearly all tools have some sort of reference that can be cited. These should be cited where appropriate. Citation information is included with every app, and here as well. If an author wishes to update their tool’s citation or adjust how it’s used, please let us know.
